Medieval history of Bharata is mainly Hindu Holocaust-ory under constant and consistent efforts of all to be out of public glare, mostly relegated into backwaters of folklores. Hindu-s have hardly ever been assertive either in protecting themselves, honour of Hindu women or even Sanatana Dharma. Lofty ideals inherited from Sanatana scriptures continue to be pursued like timid cowards with a morbid sense of satisfaction without even daring to acknowledge, when those sacrosanct ideals were authored by our Rsi-s, Maharsi-s and Acarya-s, Abrahamic cults did not exist at all in Bharata hence, we could not be educated with precautionary and retaliatory measures to combat those brutal Abrahamic oppressions that came to us anyway. Savagery of serial Hindu-holocausts sporadically continued for some 800 years under the illusion of ‘this one is the last one’ following every massacre. Mass-uprisings did occur albeit too little too late, that too, entirely reactionary deeply ingrained in Hindu psyche and never pro-actively. Serial Hindu-holocausts had been the worst human holocausts known to humanity from annals of history recorded ever.
It is an issue of extreme concern and amazement that Hindu-s accepted rule of intruders over the country as ducks glide into water !! Resistance and revolt began only when invaders and intruders embarked on loot, plunder, proselytization and all other conceivable forms of oppression. Whenever Hindu-s were not unnecessarily tormented on personal counts whatsoever, it never bothered them who had occupied the country and who had been ruling over them to their utter humiliation and mortification. Such an attitude exists even today as we have already witnessed, post-2011 Hindu-awakening was triggered by oppressive actions of UPA Governments I and II headed by Antonia Maino,an Italian naturalised through her marriage to Rajiv Gandhi who succeeded his mother in Prime Ministerial position. If common Hindu masses had not been tormented by two Antonia Maino headed Governments, most probably world would have witnessed UPA-III in 2014 being installed and destruction of the nation would have continued unabated. A provocative question that hits my cerebrum these days happens to be whether Bharata would have been a sovereign nation today if and only if British Gora-occupiers had not been exceedingly oppressive, exploitative evangelists, extortionists and destroyers of nations cultural heritage.
When Sanatana scriptures were authored by erudite Rsi-s, Maharsi-s and Acharya-s, Abrahamic faiths did not exist hence there was absolutely no reason for those scholars to insert Shloka-s warning generations to come about possible brutalities and savagery in store for our ancestors. On the same note, emphasis of anything resembling Hindu-unity was completely ignored because no such necessity was ever perceived even centuries after. These essentialities were perceived probably for the first time by Rsi Chanakya owing to oppressive rule of King Ghananda of Nanda-Vamsha, organised people to revolt againt him and coronated Chandragupta Maurya who laid down foundation of Maurya-Vamsha. As the Seer was highly successful in his efforts of regime change through a mass based revolution, he institutionalised it through his legendary work ‘Chanakya-Niti’. Policies and strategic directives enshrined in ‘Chanakya-Niti’ happen to be so much relevant today that it is now more important to study ‘Chanakya-Niti’ than even study of Veda-s in view of severe threats posed by Abrahamic cults !! This reality has been able to sink into very few Hindu minds viz. Union Home Minister Amit Shah who idolises him while majority of Hindu-s are still intensely intoxicated with dubious doctrines like ‘Secularism’, ‘Ahimsa’ and ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ rooted deep in Hindu psyche by Samrat Ashoka after his ‘Sannyasa’ propagating ‘Ahimsa’ as a standalone virtue.
Copious historical evidence is available from biographers, chroniclers, travellers and personal records from various sources that confirm Hindu-holocaustory beyond an iota of doubt. Several records from chroniclers of invading bandits went to the extent of glorifying their heinous crimes in the name of religious superiority or the notorious doctrine of ‘White mans burden’. They brutalised lakhs of Hindu men, women, plundered wealth, ravaged thousands of temples and monasteries. Let us now compile a few tragic events of Hindu-genocide to have a first hand perception of those horrible crimes perpetrated upon Hindu-s –
Mahmud al-Ghazni from Afghanistan invaded Bharata seventeen times from 1001 to 1026 AD. A chronicler of his court described few instances of brutalities perpetrated by him on Hindu-s in his work Tarikh-i-Yamini, “The blood of the infidels flowed so copiously at Thanesar that the stream was discoloured, notwithstanding its purity, and people were unable to drink it…the infidels deserted the fort and tried to cross the foaming river…but many of them were slain, taken or drowned… Nearly fifty thousand men were killed.”
In Taj-ul-Ma’asir Hassn Nizam-i-Naishapuri stated, “…when Qutb-ul-Din Aibak conquered Meerat, he demolished all the Hindu temples of the city and erected mosques on their sites. In the city of Aligarh, he converted Hindu inhabitants to Islam by the sword and beheaded all those who adhered to their own religion.” That was during 1194 to 1210 AD.
Wassaf, a Persian chronicler wrote in ‘Tazjiyat-ul-Amsar wa Tajriyat ul Asar’ that “when the Alaul-Din Khilji captured the city of Kambayat at the head of the gulf of Cambay, he killed the adult male Hindu inhabitants for the glory of Islam, set flowing rivers of blood, sent the women of the country with all their gold, silver, and jewels, to his own home, and made about twentv thousand Hindu maidens his private slaves.” He was second ruler of Khilji Dynasty during 1295-1316 AD. His Qazi read out Islamic law for Hindu-s to him thus, “Hindus are like the mud; if silver is demanded from them, they must with the greatest humility offer gold. If a Mohammadan desires to spit into a Hindu’s mouth, the Hindu should open it wide for the purpose. God created the Hindus to be slaves of the Mohammadans. The Prophet hath ordained that, if the Hindus do not accept Islam, they should be imprisoned, tortured, finally put to death, and their property confiscated.”
Bahmani Sultans in Deccan Bharata slaughtered 1,00,000 Hindu-s annually from 1347 to 1528. They always set out on Hindu slaughter spree like todays sales persons with individual targets to be achieved with a sense to ‘teaching Hindu-s a lesson’. These have been chronicled in detail by their courtier Mohammad Qasim Hindu Shah commonly known as ‘Firishta’.
Timur, a Turk of Timurid dynasty invaded Bharata in 1398 and his gruesome brutalities were recorded in his memoirs Tuzk-i-Timuri. Over 1,00,000 Hindu prisoners of war were slaughtered in one go, probably largest single genocide on Planet Earth. He himself admitted, “they said that on the great day of battle these 100,000 prisoners could not be left with the baggage, and that it would be entirely opposed to the rules of war to set these idolaters and foes of Islam at liberty. In fact, no other course remained but that of making them all food for the sword…throughout the camp that every man who has infidel prisoners was to put them to death, and whoever neglected to do so should himself be executed and his property given to the informer. When this order became known to the ghazis of Islam, they drew their swords and put their prisoners to death. 100,000 infidels, impious idolaters, were on that day slain. Maulana Nasir-ud-din Umar, a counselor and a man of learning, who, in all his life had never killed a sparrow, now, in execution of my order, slew with his sword fifteen idolatrous Hindus, who were his captives. The sword of Islam was washed in the blood of the infidels, and all the goods and effects, the treasure and the grain which for many a long year had been stored in the fort became the spoil of my soldiers.”
Nadir Shah enjoyed the ‘fun’ of raising ‘mountain’ of Hindu-skulls after slaughtering Hindu-s in Delhi alone.
After defeating Rana Sanga in 1527 at Khanua in Rajasthan, Babur raised hills of Hindu-skulls and repeated it after he captured the fort of Chanderi.
30,000 Rajputs were slaughtered by Akbar in 1568 after capturing Chittorgarh.
Mughal bandit Babur captured some areas of Bharata in 1526 and it remained so till 1530 AD. In his ‘Baburnama’ he wrote, “I attacked Chanderi and by the grace of Allah captured it in a few hours. We got the infidels slaughtered and the place which had been Daru’l-Harb for years was made into a Daru’l-Islam.” In the same Baburnama, he composed a poem too to honour Hindu-slaughter –
“For the sake of Islam I became a wanderer,
I battled infidels and Hindus,
I determined to become a martyr
Thank God I became a Killer of
Badshah Nama, Qazinivi and Badshah Nama, Lahori describe atrocities of another Mughal despot Shah Jahan during years of his occupation from 1628 to 1658, “When Shuja was appointed as governor of Kabul he carried on a ruthless war in the Hindu territory beyond Indus…The sword of Islam yielded a rich crop of converts….Most of the women burnt themselves to death. Those captured were distributed among Muslim Mansabdars.”
Afghan invader Ahmad Shah Abdali reached Mathura in 1757 ravaging Bharata. Tarikh-I-Alamgiri chronicled brutalities perpetrated by his criminal gang of so-called soldiers thus, “Abdali’s soldiers would be paid 5 Rupees (a sizeable amount at the time) for every enemy head brought in. Every horseman had loaded up all his horses with the plundered property, and atop of it rode the girl-captives and the slaves. The severed heads were tied up in rugs like bundles of grain and placed on the heads of the captives…Then the heads were stuck upon lances and taken to the gate of the chief minister for payment. It was an extraordinary display! Daily did this manner of slaughter and plundering proceed. And at night the shrieks of the women captives who were being raped, deafened the ears of the people…All those heads that had been cut off were built into pillars, and the captive men upon whose heads those bloody bundles had been brought in, were made to grind corn, and then their heads too were cut off. These things went on all the way to the city of Agra, nor was any part of the country spared.”
Invasions of Mahmud Ghaznavi, Mohammad Ghori as well as Delhi Sultanate during 1192-1526 witnessed one of the largest massacres of Hindu-s in history. ‘Hindu-Kush’ mountain ranges were so named as it meant ‘where Hindu-s are killed’.
1,80,000 Hindu-s were slaughtered by Feroz Shah Tughlaq in Bengal in 1353.
Approximately 30,00,000 were brutally killed during Partition-1947 riots on both sides of border.
Banda Bahadur Singh was captured, heart of his son was pushed into his mouth then brutally tortured to death.
In 1943, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered forcible snatching of foodstocks from Hindu-Bengalis to nourish British soldiers in WW-II. It led to famine of catastrophic dimensions and 70 lakh people died of starvation on roads exposed to vultures. The demon that Churchill was, sarcastically retorted later, let them multiply like rabbits ! This one Hindu-genocide perpetrated by Winston Churchill single-handedly equals or exceeds Nazi-holocaust of Jews by Hitler from 1941 to 1945.
Bengal has undergone repeated Hindu-pogroms at varying intervals. Noakhali riots witnessed 5,000 Hindu-s being killed, 4 lakh forcibly converted to Islam and countless Hindu women sexually ravaged.
There had been a nerve-rattling massive Hindu-genocide as recent as in 1971 in East Pakistan turned Bangladesh. Some one crore Hindu-Bengalis were displaced, any number between 2 to 4 lakh Hindu-Bengali women were savagely raped, their bodies brutalised and 30 lakh Hindu-s were brutally slaughtered during 10 month long genocide campaign in the then East Pakistan.
Irfan Husain in his article “Demons from the Past” observed, “The Muslim heroes who figure larger than life in our history books committed some dreadful crimes. Mahmud of Ghazni, Qutb-ud-Din Aibak, Balban, Mohammed bin Qasim, and Sultan Mohammad Tughlak, all have blood-stained hands that the passage of years has not cleansed..Seen through Hindu eyes, the Muslim invasion of their homeland was an unmitigated disaster. Their temples were razed, their idols smashed, their women raped, their men killed or taken slaves. When Mahmud of Ghazni entered Somnath on one of his annual raids, he slaughtered all 50,000 inhabitants. Aibak killed and enslaved hundreds of thousands. The list of horrors is long and painful. These conquerors justified their deeds by claiming it was their religious duty to smite non-believers. Cloaking themselves in the banner of Islam, they claimed they were fighting for their faith when, in reality, they were indulging in straightforward slaughter and pillage…”
Will Durant wrote in his ‘The Story of Civilisation: Our Oriental Heritage’, “The Mohammedan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with great glee and pride the slaughters of Hindus, forced conversions, abduction of Hindu women and children to slave markets and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800 AD to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by sword during this period.”
Francois Gautier affirmed in his ‘Rewriting Indian History’, “The massacres perpetuated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger than the Holocaust of the Jews by the Nazis; or the massacre of the Armenians by the Turks; more extensive even than the slaughter of the South American native populations by the invading Spanish and Portuguese.”
So wrote Alain Danielou in his book Histoire de l’ Inde, “From the time Muslims started arriving, around 632 AD, the history of India becomes a long, monotonous series of murders, massacres, spoliations, and destructions. It is, as usual, in the name of ‘a holy war’ of their faith, of their sole God, that the barbarians have destroyed civilizations, wiped out entire races.”
Whenever the dreaded term ‘Holocaust’ is proffered, instantly holocaust of Jews by Nazis pops up in our minds notwithstanding numbers in serial Hindu-holocausts are far more than Jews killed by Nazis and severity of brutalities far excessive with Hindu-s. Even complete wipe-out of native Americans by white-intruders into American continent, genocide of Armenians by Ottoman empire and slaughter of millions of Africans do not cling to our memory. Root-cause of this strange phenomenon is two-fold with Jews bonding strongly among themselves while Hindu-s continued to remain fractured in innumerable groups and sub-groups based on a plethora of socio-economic factors with complete absence of Hindu-unity even for Hindu causes. If a racist westerner outrightly blames Hindu-s for their unmitigated woes and exonerates British-intruders for skimming benefits out of a society in siege, Hindu-s have sufficient grounds to turn contemplative and introspective. Hundreds of movies were directed by Europeans and Americans to expose Nazi horrors while in case of serial Hindu-holocausts, Hindu-s are not even aware of that thanks to handing over of nations entire education system to Communists in 1966 by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and they mutilated entire education beyond recognition.
There have been large number of Hindu-warriors who fiercely fought those Mughal invaders and did not allow complete Islamization of Bharata. Raja Dahir of Sindh, Krshnadev Raya of Mysore, Rani Durgawati of Jabalpur, Raja Bhoj of Malwa, Maharaj Surajmal of Bharatpur, Chalukya and Solanki dynasties of Gujarat, Prthvi Raj Chauhan of Sambhar, Raja Narsimha Dev of Odissa, Raja Lalitaditya of Kashmir, Raja Suheldev of Bahraich, Maharana Pratap of Udaipur, Shivaji Maharaj and Peshvas of Maharashtra, Guru Govind Singh and Ranjit Singh of Panjab, Lachit Bhorphukan of Assam etc. During the era of British occupation, large number of revolutionaries beginning with Mangal Pandey, Laxmi Bai, CS Azad, Bhagat Singh, Ram Prasad Bismil, Sukhdeva, Rajguru, Lala Lajpat Rai, Vinayak Savarkar, Lokmanya Tilak upto Netaji Bose and his Indian National Army led multiple rounds of uprisings to throw away invaders and occupiers sacrificing their precious lives. While warriors of Mughal era were mostly let down by their home-grown moles acting as traitors, revolutionaries against British occupation were very badly let down by leaders of Indian National Congress founded by a Brit-Gora AO Hume and now headed by an Italian woman. McCaulays indoctrination followed by mutilation of our glorious history by Communists has percolated so deep in our neurons that any Hindu will be shocked if you tell him/her, Mountbatten was the last British-intruder who forcibly occupied ‘Viceroy House’ now known as Rashtrapati Bhavan. We must recall quite pertinently that his funeral was shouldered by the then Vice President Hidayatullah far away in London with Admiral RL Parreira as his pall-bearer !! Mercifully, the saxton who tolled bell behind the funeral was not a Bharatiya. When British Queen visited us in 1950s, she was warmly welcomed at Delhi airport with 21-Gun salute, by the then President Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Vice President Dr. Radhakrishnan and Prime Minister Nehru notwithstanding the fact that she had presided over a brutal regime of 200 years in Bharata responsible for multiple Hindu-Holocausts and siphoning off 45 Trillion $ worth of Hindu wealth !! They were spineless pathetic leaders devoid of self-esteem who desecrated serial Hindu-Holocausts and sanctified culture of Mir Jafars and Jaichands in the country for generations to come. When the demand was raised for the brutal British monarchy to tender an apology to us, Bharatiya Christians were in the forefront opposing the demand.
Why should the world know about serial Hindu-Holocausts when we are gifted with such a mind-set and Brutus-conduct of invidiously treacherous politicians of Congress hitherto ??
